Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger launched a probe into a Democratic group founded by former gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams over allegations of ” “aggressively” registering “ineligible, out-of-state, or deceased voters.”

The investigation includes other Democrat-led groups throughout Georgia, including the New Georgia Project, America Votes, and Vote Forward.

In a statement on Wednesday, Raffensperger said, “I have issued clear warnings several times to groups and individuals working to undermine the integrity of elections in Georgia through false and fraudulent registrations,” declaring “The security of Georgia’s elections is of the utmost importance.”

Raffensperger said his office “received specific evidence that these groups have solicited voter registrations from ineligible individuals who have passed away or live out of state.” An example being America Votes purportedly sending absentee ballot applications to individuals who haven’t lived at specific addresses since 1994.
